. he's planning this year to abolish the corporate and individual income tax, moving in a very different direction than the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. so there's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines are open. democrats, 202-585-3880. republicans, 202-585-3881. independents, 202-585-3882. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week with. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in add
and businesses and consumers do not want to hear, it's a new tax on the internet. even downloads from ituness, who thinks that is a good idea? not me, here is good news "the kudlow report" begins right now. president obama in israel for the first same in his presidency, securing the relations with the allie in the middle east, here is what he had to say when greeted by benjamin netanyahu. it's in our fundamental security interest to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger and more prosperous and makes the world a better place. >> so question is, what exactly is the president hoping to accomplish in israel. here now we republican former u.s. ambassador and dan senor the coauthor of start up nation. joining me here on set for the hour, ryan grim, huff post washington bureau chief, and tony frato, former white house deputy press secretary. welcome to one and all, if i may go to you first, ambassador, there's all this media chatter that i'm reading today that president obama the not know what he wants to do and he has no agenda. it's said that he was the first u.s. president to visit israel
wanted to commend it administration for its aggressiveness in getting this person. a tax that may be planned by al qaeda -- attacks that may be planned by al qaeda. all of us should agree that the work that you have done and what the fbi has done since 9/11, really protecting the country against any massive domestic terrorist attacks, and all of your activities internationally, it has really been remarkable. not itscy, it was primary focus on 9/11, but as much of the country, we've had to focus more intently on this issue. i do want to bring you back home. my final question is about the budget and appropriations and the department of justice. we imprison more people than any other nation in the world through our state and federal prison systems. 24% of the doj budget -- you are at about 29%. it will continue to rise. at some point, we need to think differently about what we're doing with people. i have constituents, family, children, we all want to be protected from dangerous people. a society ought to be protected. people involved in wrongdoing should be punished. at some point a
and a member of the ways and means tax writing committee. if you would, starts by bringing us up-to-date on where the house is when it comes to the continuing resolution and the 2014 budget. guest: the continuing resolution which funds the government was passed out of the house a couple of weeks ago. the senate has been dealing with that. they passed it last evening. it is back in the house, and we will likely pass that today, which is good news because one of the things that we included was the spending reduction, the appropriate spending reduction so we can try to get this economy back on track. excitingt is an activity that is been on the house floor these past two days. we will likely pass that out of the house of representatives today. this is a budget by paul ryan that will allow us to get to balance. that means the government will stop sending more money than it takes in by the end of the decade, which is really exciting. what that allows us to do is to get the economy rolling, jobs being created and provide more certainty so young people coming out of college know there i
a bank at tax plan. now the risks of bank runs and bank collapses mount in this tiny country. we are about to bring you live report from cyprus. but cyprus may have an ace in the hole. it's called russia. the parliament is going hat in hand to russia to save its financial system in return for ownership of its natural gas resources. so do i have this right? the russian money-laundering thugs can save cyprus and maybe europe and maybe the global financial markets as well? it's a very scary thought. however, here at home, american business leaders speaking in one voice in a new campaign to push pro growth corporate tax reform. i like it. the polls show it. there's too much talk about root canal, dent and budge cutting. we need growth, we need optimism. we need "the kudlow report." it begins right now. >>> first up this evening, let's go live to cnbc chief international correspondent, michelle caruso cabrera who joins us from cyprus with the details. good evening, michelle. >> reporter: good evening, larry. it's been a day of high drama here in cyprus. just a few hours ago, the parli

plus tax increases and have net spending increases and when he you have a trillion dollar deficit, we need to work on our spending and when the other side is offering even more spending increases and even more tax increases, more borrowing, we're still kind of worlds apart. >> greta: i went through the budget and it's very complicated, at least i think it's complicated. and i want to go to different provisions i understand. let me start with medicare. under your program it doesn't affect anyone over age 55. >> if you're born in 1958 or earlier, it doesn't affect you. meaning you stay in the current medicare program just as it's designed now. in addition we get rid of the obamacare independent payment advisor board. the board of 15 bureaucrats next year in charge of cutting medicare in ways that medicare will lead to denied access to current seniors so we don't think we should change medicare for current seniors, which is what obamacare does, we propose a new system for younger people that works like what we have in congress. >> greta: and as i understand it, there are two choices unde
-increases debt, raises taxes and never balances. the top republican for budgetary issues blasted the democratic plan. >> now we know why senator reid did not want to bring up a budget. the plan from the democratic leadership is a failed plan for america. it does not alter the debt course of america, has no growth component to it. it spends more and taxes more. reporter: but these budget resolutions only require a simple majority so there are enough democrats to pass the democrats' budget resolution without republican votes needed. and so there you have republicans in the senate, all they can do is bash the plan. they cannot actually stop it. the house republicans are passing the paul ryan plan, and so then they'll go to conference and that where the heavy lifting will begin. >> shepard: the paul ripe plan has zero chance. >> it will pass the house and then they'll try to iron it out between the two plans. the paul ryan plan on its own would not be signed by president obama, would not pass the senate, burt it will pass the house. >> shepard: mike, thank you. meantime, something about our econo

romney has not paid taxes for ten years, he's got a record of this slander and these lies. >> happy wednesday, sean. look, this is a majority leader in the senate that's gotten caught lying many times and when the marine corps says that what he is saying is unsubstantiated, they're saying he's lying again. harry reid has made a habit of being dishonest on the floor of the senate and what he is trying to do is just cover the president's butt on sequester. the president himself started to cover his own butt by playing such silly games as shutting the white house tours down. this is just another version of that. remember, donald trump offered to pay for all those white house tours. >> sean: whoa, whoa, whoa. >> and the president didn't take him up on it. >> sean: and wait a minute, i offered to pay for a week after eric biology golling got start started. by the way, it's off the table, i pay enough in taxes. >> you and bill maher. >> sean: yeah, he's even sick of paying taxes and california democrats are losing him. gee, time to wake up, bill. but here is my point: these democrats get

of the newest senators go on the record voting for or against spending or higher taxes. the budget would be nonbinding so would act as guidelines for the u.s. government. but at the heart of the debate, how do you reduce the government's massive budget debt, and changes in taxes and spending. today the top democrat and the republican had their say. >> both sighs favor closing took loopholes that favor the wealthiest americans, and the senate thinks shouldsome revenue should be idea to tackle the deficit and invest in the middle class, not just simply cut tax rates for the rich. >> usually you can tax more and spend more and borrow more and that will somehow create growth and prosperity. i believe we have had four years of that experiment, which i fundamentally doubted and opposed from the beginning. and it hasn't worked. >> shepard: regardless of whether it's worked or hasn't, the insiders say the democratic budget will likely pass. mike emanuel is in washington. how has the vote been going and what's it like in there so far? reporter: we expect starting any moment they'll vote on a seri

't the president, but the governor of california, and tax reform happened in that state. and it wasn't until later, ironically back in california, when ronald reagan as the president signed into raw the economic recovery -- into law the economic recovery act. real reform happened in the states. as was mentioned yesterday, there are now in america some 30 states that have republican governors and nearly as many that have republican legislatures. [applause] and so that's the good news. the good news is we have success, and it's happening in our states, and we can learn from that to tell our friends and our colleagues in washington how to move forward. because, you see, in the states to be successful we have to be optimistic. we have to be relevant. and most importantly, we have to be courageous. let me talk to you a little bit about each of those three things. you see, when it talks about being inspirational and optimistics, one of the things that's interesting is when i first ran for governor -- i have to say first because who would have thought i'd have to get elected twice in the same term -- [la

introduce $20 billion in additional taxes this year and $40 billion in new taxes next year. so the deficit under the democratic senate budget proposal which only thing we've got at this point, calls for more spending and more taxes and bigger deficits. that is not where the american people are. recent polls this week showed that 55% of the american people favored the republican budget plan. if you took the word republican off of it and simply described would you support a budget that balances the budget and raises no taxes and cuts $5 trillion of them favor that 55% to 24% that budget that would raise taxes by a trillion and cut spending by hundred billion and not balance the budget which is what the democratic budget calls for. >> greta: we are 18 months out from the 2014 election. we have the house has passed a budget and senate has passed a budget. it will go to a conference for reconciliation. both parties have made it sent tral focus of 2014. it is a signal they are more interested in winning and making sorted smear each other's face with each other budget rather than drawing common g
